"The White Buses" was a strong and very emotionally engaging exhibition about the Danish policemen, among others, who were sent to the German concentration camp in Neuengamme in 1944, when the cooperation between the German occupiers and the Danish government broke down. As a visitor, you could follow the inmates on their hard journey on a train carriage to the camp and through their hard time there. The plan to get them and other Scandinavian prisoners out of the camps was the main theme of the exhibition. White buses with lots of volunteer drivers, doctors and nurses drove them to the rescue. The operation was fraught with dilemmas and difficult decisions, and everyone involved got scarred one way or another.
